“I’m almost the patriarch “. Is that like being almost pregnant?

According to Watfa’s computations she is expecting 29 or 30 for Paella dinner Friday night. 29 if just Jack shows up but 30 if Steve shows up too. Plus she has a lot of other items for us all to get fat on, and Ted you have to eat a plateful. Wine, booze and beer will flow. Come hungry and thirsty.

Hi Irv,

Tell Watfa to add 2 more. We just recruited a very nice couple here in Ft Myers who live aboard and their KK42 "Courage" which is parked here next to OC Diver's boat. They are Dick and Sue, and Dick just joined TF. He should appear here soon. Cheers,

David & Maria

Hi David

Got it. One question. Does Sue need a sippy cup like Maria?

I'm going to try. Have been eating tons of authentic Mexican food (most of which I can't pronounce or spell) all week. If it weren't for diving 4 hours a day, I think I'd be in the hospital. I would tell you I'm going to fast for the trip up to Fort Pierce, but I'm sure Maria has other plans.

Try is not good enough, you have to be there along with a handful of others. The others are just window dressing.

Irv,

According to Larry's and my best count with Dick and Sue added it is 25. So, Watfa did a good guess. However, if Steve makes it 26.

Here's the evening schedule.

Wednesday: Hors d'oeuvres and drinks on Hobo

Thursday: Pizza on Moonstruck

Friday: Watfa and Irv's big spread on their new boat.

For those interested we can get a trip up to the Navy Seal and UDT Museum.

For those interested we can get a trip up to the Marine Connection (a large marine salvage operation)

There are some talking about a trip to tour NASA at Cape Kennedy. That would be on Friday.

Hi Don

First thanks to you and Larry for all the work to put this shindig together, I know it’s like herding cats.

Second a small correction: it’s Watfa’s spread, she is putting it all together and yes it is a new boat to us so when we approach the dock Best to put all your fenders out and clear the decks. Safety first.

Third I enjoyed the barbecue joint last year and I am told there is a restaurant named Second avenue that is close and decent so I’m hoping to make it to both.

Fourth the Marine connection sounds like a winner, I missed it last year.

Fifth we have some party favors and equipment from our last boat to give away.

We are looking to another fun time with like minded friends except for that Steve character. LOL

One other thing, we have wine as Scott likes drinking wine with the girls. LMAO

Hi Don,

Schedule sounds great. Sign me and Maria up for any trip to Marine Connection.

Also we should remind folks about the Farmer's Market. It's Wednesday I believe. Cheers.

David

Scott I have specialized training too. Like what more can I do for you dear, or are you sure you don’t need more money to go shopping for more jewelry.

Sounds like quite a lineup! Count me in for:

Marine Connection

Farmer's Market

Local Lunch establishments (and all food and drink events!)

Kennedy Space Center

I'll be landing in Orlando on Tues late afternoon and arriving Ft. Pierce around 2000 Tuesday evening where Steve and I will be renting an AirBnB house. I'll have a rental car for local excursions.

Wifey B: I would strongly advise against the use of the term "party favors" especially in conjunction with all the booze as it has a very different meaning to the urban dictionary crowd.

Now my fave restaurants near there:

12A Buoy
Chuck's Seafood
Moonswiner's BBQ
